Looking back at your week
If you are Seeing Yourself iN Christ (SYNCing), you see yourself as a person with a mission. Christ has a life-giving mission, and you are in on it. End your week with one or more of these mission-related questions.
What did I do to make sure a whole week did not go by without thanking God even once for creating the world and us? How well did my reminders of creation and Life Season work?
(Thank God for whatever worked)
Where did I experience the glories of creation--beauty, food, music, family, etc.? What did I marvel at in real life, on-screen, or in print or art?
(Praise God for being so creative and making people creative.)
Did I hear anyone admiring God's creation and the life he gives? Did I mention those things to anyone else?
(God gets overlooked at lot. You can help fix that. Speak up and give credit where credit is due.)
How alert was I for opportunities to enrich someone's life last week? Which opportunities did I seize? With hindsight, can I see any I missed?
(Rejoice of those you seized and repent of those you missed. Keep your attention back to God's life so you overflow with it.)
Did I harm anyone or any part of God's creation last week?
(If so, you are out of SYNC. Repent and remember we are living in a created world. God had great plans for it and for us. Let's SYNC with those.)
Bottom line: Is there more Life in the world today than there would be if I had not lived the past week the way I lived it?
(If the answer is yes, then heaven's transforming power is already coming to earth, just as Jesus said it is. (Mk. 1.15) We really are what we prayed God would make us--a fountain of the water of life.)
